Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano’s relationship with office is strained

It was reported last week the Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano turned down a one year extension offer from Jim Irsay. That immediately put the rumors on fast track that Pagano would be on the hot seat in 2015. Something that sounds almost ludicrous, since given the fact that in his three years in Indianapolis has compiled two AFC South titles, and three playoff wins. Well...

Is Chuck Pagano receiving the Jim Harbaugh treatment?

There are reports surfacing that the Indianapolis Colts don’t plan on extending head coach Chuck Pagano this offseason. Despite leading Indianapolis to the playoffs in each of the past three seasons, Pagano is now prepared to enter into a make-or-break 2015 campaign. This is interesting for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Pagano’s success has been nearly unparalleled...

Indianapolis Colts: Safety is not the biggest need

For the Indianapolis Colts, safety is the biggest hole on the roster, but it is not the biggest need. That title belongs to the defensive line. Kendall Langford replacing Cory Redding isn’t the answer to the New England Patriots ramming the ball down the Colts’ throats for 45 minutes a game. The Colts need help up front, and badly. Sure, there are more unknowns in the defensive...

Indianapolis Colts sign G Todd Herremans

Herremans was one of several veterans cut or traded by the Eagles this off-season, in an effort to free up as much cap space as possible for free agency, in the first off-season that Chip Kelly has had control over the roster. Herremans was owed 4 million in 2015 and the Eagles saved 2.8 million on the cap immediately by letting him go. It was a smart move. Herremans is an accomplished...

The True Value of the Colts’ Free Agent Contracts

When it comes to NFL contracts, the substance rarely matches the flash.
